    Would you ever consider holding future events early in the week instead of a saturday? I imagine a lot of your partygoers are farmers and have weekend market commitments. Our Farmers Market in St Martins is sunday afternoon which means all day friday and saturday til midnite is harvesting, washing, weighing, and bagging produce. A number of other markets are held on saturdays. How about a poll on this site? Wishing we could come, sounds like a great time and a welcome break!

      Hi Kathi,

      Thanks for posting! Yes, it’s definitely a tough decision about when to host an event when there are farmers involved! Given that most markets are Saturday morning, we’d hoped that having it begin Saturday afternoon (post-market) would allow more farmers to come–but I’m sorry to hear that you will be unable to attend as a result of the Sunday market in St. Martins! This is just the second year for this particular event and really, it comes down to what works for the event host as well when the public would be available to attend. But your point is well understood and we’ll reconsider from year to year!

      We hope you can make it for at least some of the event if at all possible!
